Life gets busy, too busy at times.
September is always crazy.
When we finally took time to breathe, it felt nice to take a ride.
It was a short ride, only about 15 minutes away.
And we weren't there for long.
But while we were there, it felt good to forget about
laundry and bills and schoolwork.
It felt good to drink in the blue sky and fall air.
It felt good to watch the kids exploring.
We didn't get away this summer after Stormy's diagnosis.
The kids were more than gracious in understanding.
So that made this quick little getaway so much more important.
It made it food for the soul.
It made it family time.
Time to be a kid.
Time to enjoy our kids.
Time to drive a big red tractor, and not have to think about multiplication, or spelling words...
...or a very full schedule of Honors high school courses...
Time off from golf practice....
Just time to enjoy the gifts of nature....
especially the cranberries....
a true sign that fall has hit our little corner of the world....
We are off to the Apple Orchard.
